TLOKA INDICA.                                  103

There has been a good deal of confusion with respect to this species, partly caused
by TTaJlich's having mistaken it for U. lutea, Eoxb. (Mphonsea lutea), and partly
by Wight and Arnott having accidentally reversed the labels of this plant and U.
Keyneana, Wall. (Orophea Heyneana}> after comparing their collection with the
Wailichian Herbarium, or perhaps rather owing to the accidental shifting of the
labels of these two plants in Dr. Arnott's herbarium.

l/varia BasseUii, Blame, Anon. 46. t. 21, is so closely allied to this, that we had
almost united them; in that, however, the petioles are scarcely a line long, so that
for the present they must be kept distinct. V. Hasseltii is known *n fruit only.
The carpels are three and shortly pedicellate.
